CONSORT PICKED BY ROYALTY
Somewhat Summary Method of Mating
as It Is Done In the Kingdom
Kings of Slnm apparently do not bo
Hovo In tho wisdom of allowing singlo
women to drift unattnehed about tho
country. In certain districts nftor a
girl has reached an ago whero her se
curing for herself a husband Is con
sidered doubtful, she becomes a
"daughter of tho king." That Is, tho
king takes upon himself tho task of
settling her suitably In life.
His process Is quite simple, and to
tho point. Ho proceeds to the Sla
ineso penitentiary and looks over the
various prisoners. There Is a law In
Slam that any prisoner can obtain his
release by marrying one of this class
of girls, nnd, naturally enough, any
plsoncr whom tho king picks out Is
not likely to bo backwnrd about con
senting to tho ceremony. Nor does it
mako any difference If ho is married,
for tho men of that country are not
restricted to ouo wife.
Ab far as can bo learned, thrre is
np allowanco mado for the inclination
of tho girl In question. She has failed
In her mission in llfo as far as sho
herself Is concerned, and she must
abide by tho decision of tho king.
Cream Corn Soup.
Heat a quart of milk In a mush boll
cr, as milk scorches easily; press a
small can of corn through a strainer
to removo hulls. If tho corn does not
go through tho strainer well, pour the
milk into it; this will help to secure
the pulp of tho corn. Add a lump of
buttor tho slzo of & walnut and pep
per and salt to suit the taste. Beat
tho white of ono egg to a stiff froth
and ctld Into the soup lightly a few
minutes before serving.

SUCCESSFUL, COMIC OPERA REVOLT
By ono of tho most curloua turns
of fortune's wheel, n comic opora ro
volt became n tromendoua revolution
and tho man who lately waa at tho
mercy of Madero substantially bo
camo Madoro'a conqueror nnd tho
now master of Mcxicp.
This man Is Colonel Felix Diaz, -
tho favorlto nephew of tho banished
dictator, and as it now sooms, n
leader of Porlflro Diaz's daring and
ability. A little moro than three
months, ago Colonel Diaz raised tho
banner of iusurroctlon In Vera Cruz
against Madero, but was overwhelmed
nnd captured with hardly a shot fired.
Tried for troason, found guilty and
condemned to donth, Colonel Diaz
waa aavod only by tho clomoncy of
President 'Madoro, who commuted
tho death sentenco to Imprisonment
In tho military fortress of San Juan
do Ullvn at Vora Cruz.
Tho fact is tho Diaz revolution of
October wna not n flzzlo, and It did
not provo ihat Colonel Felix was a weakling or a bad loader. Tho uprising
was badly timed
Colonel Felix Diaz Is forty yearB old and la tho son of Genoral Folix
Diaz, n brother of tho formor presidont, who was killed in 1871 during a
revolution which tho Dlnz faction led against Prosldont Juarez.
